The Birgit Rausing Language Program announces its second conference, Humanities
of the Lesser-Known, to be held September 10-11, 2010, in Lund, Sweden. The
central focus is the documentation and description of endangered or lesser-
known languages. The conference is divided into the following thematic foci:
grammar, prosody, semantics and musicology, with a special focus on interfaces
between these domains.

We aim to provide a platform to discuss interdisciplinary approaches connecting
these domains of communication, with particular reference to a diverse sample of

Invited Speakers:
- Peter Austin (School of Oriental and African Studies)
- Sun-Ah Jun (UCLA)
- Stephen C. Levinson (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics)
- Asifa Majid (Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics)
- Anthony Seeger (UCLA)

We invite submissions from all areas of linguistics and musicology of
endangered or lesser-known languages or cultures, and particularly welcome
papers which deal with the interfaces between different domains of human
communication. Individual papers (20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion) and
poster talks can be submitted through the conference website from November 15
until February 28, 2010.
